you can do it that way unless u had a nice air gun set at TDC loosen the timing belt tensioner, pop off hte valve cover and take off the bolt holdin the cam gear then the safety keeper out slowly makesure u don't drop it into the timing bottom cover or you will be fucked.......then just reverse that and torque to specs.........

to remove cam gears, make sure your #1 cyl is top dead center(reason for this) 12mm wrench on the bolt and lossen...make sure you get the woodruff key its small so dont lose it. i hope your ready because do a timing belt install because you will have to redo the timing belt,because you will be removing it from the gears thats why you want to make sure its top dead center..i went through this headache when i changed mine because you WILL move the cams when you take off the belt because there is a load on the cam when its TDC and when you take off the belt the cams will move... just my info from someone who done it
to loosen the 12mm bolt on the cam gear, I use a peice of paper, undo the camshaft bearing cap nearest the cam gear, put the peice of paper between the bearing cap and camshaft, bolt down the bearing cap then undo the bolt holding the cam gear in place. REMEMBER to remove the peice of paper when your done. Other wise you'll be in for a surprise. With that said it's always best to verify your work 2x's or even 3x's over.
so in order for me ot take them off i would have to put them back on a assembled head? no way i can have something that cna jus torque it loose or a tool that locks it in place while unbolting the 12 mm?
